Dave Oakley/James Slater

January 17 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

One of our occasional double-headers.

Chipping Norton based singer songwriter Dave Oakley first trod the boards at the Zap Club in Brighton in 1986 and made his London debut at “God’s Little Joke,” an open mic in Clapham, followed by the Troubadour and the Mean Fiddler.

Moving to Bristol in 2000, Dave has played at many clubs in the south-west, including supporting some of the great artists performing at the legendary Albert Hole and Priddy Folk Festival.

His thoughtful, well-crafted songs cover all the usual topics of love, life death, whiskey and Maurine O’Hara, but not necessarily in that order.

James Slater is a singer/songwriter living in the west country, his influences however are the other west! over the water in the US. James sings Americana, blending folk, country, blues, rock n roll, gospel and other influences.

James regularly performs solo as well as collaborating with other musicians. 2018 saw the long awaited release of his album “Bitter Truths”, a collection of finely crafted songs which reflect his love of Americana.

One could describe James much like his favourite guitar… aged whiskey soaked and tobacco stained with knocks and scratches that tell you they’ve seen a lot of life on the road. Recently featured in Acoustic Guitar magazine, James has performed clubs and venues across the UK, Europe and USA.
